Welcome to part 2 of the San Diego Comic Con 2017 reveals, this time we have a return of our friend saving the world one ex boyfriend (or girlfriend) at a time.
These are the first reveals (so far) from SDCC that are going to be limited, in the Star Wars reveal none were limited which means all of those should be shared with retailers. But as ever with Scott Pilgrim there are some limitations involved! I’m sure those who are fans of Scott Pilgrim know that every-time Funko releases items from this line, they are usually pretty hard to get. Which is a shame! I’m certainly looking forward to grabbing some of these .. if i can that is.
Nega Scott below is the only one who isn’t limited, though you shouldn’t lose hope as even though they probably won’t be shared with any retailers they will probably appear on the Funko Shop. Though what am i saying, it’s extremely difficult to grab items from there! But it is another chance. What is your favorite piece, or pieces from this line? I wonder. Roxy Ritcher wasn’t my favorite character from the film, but i have to say her POP is very cute so i would definitely want that one. Though my favorite is probably going to be the Rock Candy, and it is Ramona Flowers of all people. I’m really hoping they also release Envy Adams as a Rock Candy sometime that would be awesome. Glam shots and info coming up!

Grab a few friends from the latest in the line of longest named films ever with the War for the Planet of the Apes Funko POPs!
Unlike the recently announced Planet of the Apes Dorbz, these figures are actually from the latest film which is hitting cinemas on the 14th of July. I’m certainly excited to see it, the other two films were more surprises for me as i was never planning on seeing them originally. But when me and my wife went to watch them both we enjoyed them a lot more than i thought we would, so the third film in the installment is definitely on the list. Anyone here a fan, or not fan of the re-imagination of the classic tale? I wonder.
The POPs we have in this line are fairly limited, we only get Caesar and Maurice which is surprising. Even hardly watched TV shows get 3 or so, but it is just one in the 100’s of movies being released so i guess it’s understandable. And there’s also that i can’t really think of any other characters i’d even want to see from the film, when half the cast are various kinds of monkeys that doesn’t leave much to go on. But i can say a POP Ride of Caesar on a horse would be pretty.. awesome, what do you think? Glam shots and info coming up!

Will this be Captain Jack’s last outing? Reminisce about the latest trip on the little boat with the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Funko POPs!
Let your hair down like Captain Salazar did after his curse and take a load off, definitely one of the cooler POPs we’ve seen. But what’s this, some kind of controversy? Yes some have been commenting their disbelief over the choice of Chase for this line, quoting that the “Cursed” state is his regular appearance. I guess i can kind of see where they are coming from, a Chase is normally an alternative design whereas the Chase here is what he looks like for the majority of the film. What are your thoughts?
One thing you should take note of is that no the real Golden Jack Sparrow POP isn’t THAT shiny, glam shots always make them look better than they really do. You can click here to see my article about that POP, as of writing this he is still on sale! I’m glad that they’re bringing Will Turner back, he was a very likable character in the original films. I also would like some up to date POPs of Penelope Cruz and Keira Knightly’s characters for sure, though they have nothing to do with this film but here’s hoping. Glam shots and info coming up!

Come and join the hype train and get your hands on the upcoming Valerian Funko POPs!
Well if you haven’t seen poster after trailer after advert for this film, then count yourself lucky! To say there’s a hype train around this film is an understatement, from what i’ve seen it could be interesting. At least the source material has a lot of merit, but i’m sure you know by now you can’t tell anything from a trailer. The trailer is .. very basic, all it does is just tick all the cliche boxes for a hyped up movie. Has anyone here read the source material? Feel free to comment! Or just in general if you have opinions on this movie. I’ll most definitely be seeing it, it’s a very colorful and vast science fiction world which looks very promising. It also has Cara Delevingne playing Laureline who i’m fond of, i thought she was awesome as the Enchantress in Suicide Squad.
As for the POPs, well it’s an interesting selection. I’ll definitely be getting Laureline as she seems pretty cool, i like the hair they did on her .. i wonder how it will look in person. Aside from that we have a first in the Funko world, 2 chases for a POP. Yes you heard that right, they both have a 1 in 6 chance so .. in every box of 6 Doghan there will be 4 commons and 2 Chases. I’m not sure what the reasoning is, perhaps he’s cute (comedic relief) in the film and they’re making him the mascot similar to Niffler from Fantasic Beasts? We’ll have to wait and see about any exclusives closer to the date, i’m hoping to see variants of the main characters in some more interesting and animated poses. Glam shots and info coming up!

Another awesome figure on the way with the upcoming Wonder Woman The Movie Rock Candy!
Welcome to part 3 of our New York Toy Fair series, chronicling all the revelations Funko has made during the 2017 event.
I’m certainly looking forward to this one, i’m a big fan of the Rock Candy line so far. I like the more realistic appearance and the slimmer and taller form factor, POPs can look the part but they don’t suit every franchise. Also as it’s a new line it’s easier to collect them all, though that’s looking harder already! You can check out our Rock Candy section by clicking here. They have been adding new figures to this line thick and fast, so make sure you keep up! The Diana figure itself looks wonderful, they have her pose just right so she looks strong and formidable. What are your thoughts? Glam shot and info coming up!
Update: Added a real photo of her from the New York Toy Fair 2017 at the end.

Get ready for a reboot with the upcoming The Mummy 2017 Funko POPs!
Welcome to part 2 of our New York Toy Fair series, chronicling all the revelations Funko has made during the 2017 event.
What are your thoughts on this Reboot? I wonder. I know i have fond memories of the original film, it was pretty awesome though they kind of used up the good will they built with lackluster sequels. And let’s not talk about Brendan Fraser’s career! I can’t say i had this movie in my mind for a reboot before it was announced, but i can’t say it looks too bad. Know my wife always says she dislikes Tom Cruise because of his crazy antics in the real world, though i personally try not to let that affect anything as i don’t know him personally. I always say that Tom Cruise’s films are (almost) always awesome and fun films. With that in mind i’m looking forward to this one!
Speaking of the POPs i will probably have to pick The Mummy as my favorite of the lot, she’s pretty cool and i love the actress who plays her. They didn’t do too well with the Nick Morton POP, he really doesn’t look anything like Tom Cruise and aside from his accessories he really could be any guy. Ahmanet seems fun, i like the hair they have done and it shows of their new body shapes they have been working on with the fancy dress they worked up for her. Glam shots and info coming up!

Are you gonna bite? Reservoir Dogs Funko POPs coming to a store near you soon!
Welcome to part 29 of our London Toy Fair series!
Here we have some concept work for 3 POPs from the classic Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs, me personally i’m a huge Tarantino fan! What about you? I love pretty much everything he’s done, from the classic to the more obscure. Some people i know refuse to watch them mostly because of the violence, though whatever the context of the film i always feel you shouldn’t let that get in the way of experiencing a great story. From what i can see there is no Mr. Orange .. yet .. these are just very early concept works, so as usual i would assume there will be more around the time of release. Things like exclusives, Chases and so on. Anything you’re looking for? I wonder. Concept shots and info coming up!

Do you have a complex? Come check out the upcoming Ghost in the Shell Funko POPs!
Welcome to part 28 of our London Toy Fair series!
These ones i’m fairly looking forward to, and not just the POPs i’d certainly love to see the film when it comes out. What are your thoughts on the upcoming live action remake of Ghost in the Shell? I did see the original Anime and it is certainly a classic, it’s strange to think just how long ago these Anime shows were first created (1995). Some say they are playing around with the story-line too much, but i wouldn’t mind i mean if we want more things like this they have to try and appeal to the western market. There’s a reason why Anime and Manga aren’t as big over here! With anything like this i think we just need to let the western and eastern versions be their own thing, and enjoy each as they come (or not, we will see once the film’s out!). Glam shots and info coming up!
Note: There is also an FYE exclusive in this line of Major in her black jacket, click here for that article!
